I had to get refund,and I received more money than I paid on account of the change of currency.

========================================
Would you take a look at the sentence? If there are any errors, correct them please.

  • English Grammar -

    I had to get refund,and I received more money than I paid on account of the change of currency.

    1. Put a space after the comma.

    2. Change the verb tense from "paid" (past) to "had paid" (past perefect) since that action took place before "received."

    Change "on account of" to "because of."

    What does "the change of currency" mean? The currency exchange??

    Also -- in #1, the phrasing should be "I had to get a refund..."

    Get that word "a" in there.

    =)
